Example

The following example shows the usage of std::set::value_comp.

#include <iostream>
#include <set>

int main () {
   std::set<int> myset;

   std::set<int>::value_compare mycomp = myset.value_comp();

   for (int i = 0; i <= 10; i++) myset.insert(i);

   std::cout << "myset contains:";

   int highest=*myset.rbegin();
   std::set<int>::iterator it = myset.begin();
   do {
      std::cout << ' ' << *it;
   } while ( mycomp(*(++it),highest) );

   std::cout << '\n';

   return 0;
}

The above program will compile and execute properly.

myset contains: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
